Wrexham vs MK Dons

*Odds correct as of 08:00 on August 4

For the first time in 15 years, Wrexham are back in the Football League. An incredible 2022/23 season saw the Welsh side go toe-to-toe with Notts County throughout the entire campaign and come out on top with an incredible 111 points, giving Hollywood owners Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney some of the best moments of their lives as they finally secured promotion to League Two. They will have to be without prolific goalscorer Paul Mullin, who scored 47 goals last season, after being ruled out with punctured lung he suffered in the pre-season friendly with Manchester United.

MK Dons, meanwhile, find themselves back in the fourth division of English football after their four year spell in League One came to an end last term. After failing to win any of their last eight matches (D6, L2), Mark Jackson was relieved of his managerial duties at the end of the campaign when relegation was confirmed, with Graham Alexander now being given the chance of helping the Dons gain promotion back to the division at the first time of asking.

Wrexham vs MK Dons team news

Last season’s top goalscorer Paul Mullin suffered a punctured lung in a pre-season friendly with Manchester United so will play no part here, but new signing Will Boyle is expected to come straight in at CB. Ben Foster has returned for another season at the Racehorse Ground and will continue as their number one.
